    What users have said about Media Catalog

    “Your easy media browser does the trick no other can provide” – Inge
    “Thanks for some great software.” – Joe
    “I’ve just downloaded your software and I want to tell you that it’s awesome, congratulations :)” – Fabio

    A ZOT Mini-Interview with Robert Kuilman
    Creator of Media Catalog.

    What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?
    Media Catalog’s strength lies in its ease of use. For instance, it automatically updates available volumes.

    Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?
    I have a lot of archived media that I need to search, and a lot of computers on this network have data I need, so as a programmer developing Media Catalog seemed logical.

    What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?
    Speed and ease of use. Media Catalog is the fastest out there, and I want people to know it.

    What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?
    Tough question. There are a lot of applications I use on a daily basis, and nearly all of them Rock. But I guess Cultured Code’s Things would be the most helpful.

    What would you like a user to ask you?
    It’s always great when a user asks for a specific feature to be added. Ofcourse some of them don’t make it into the software, but it provides a clear view of what users need and want.

    What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy?
    Most people want to know if Media Catalog works in their specific network setup, the answer is yes 99% of the time.

    of paper that could get lost.

    Fliq users see each other on the network. So, sharing
    information is as easy as a tap, click, or a drag-n-drop.
    No complex setup or configuration.

    Fliq is a family of powerful applications for iPhone,
    iPod touch, Mac and Windows PC that provides cool, fast
    and easy ways to share your contacts, photos, notes, tasks, and virtually any type of document with others over a Wi-Fi network.

    Fliq at home, at a friend’s, in a cafe, at a sports
    arena, on campus, in an airport, at the mall, and wherever
    else there is a shared network.

    Snap a photo with your phone and in a couple of taps,
    send it off to people on your list. Get together with
    people you know, make new friends and discover your own
    ways to get the most out of Fliq for whatever you do
    and wherever go.

    MyTunesRSS 3.6.5
    Access all your media files from anywhere in a browser or iPhone

    Normally: $20.00

    ZOT Price: $10.00

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  


    MyTunesRSS allows you to access the music and videos from your iTunes library or any simple watch folder over a local network or even the internet. You can access your music
    from all over the world using a simple web browser. The user interface lets you search for titles or browse your whole library by album,
    artist or genre. You can access your iTunes playlists or create new ones directly in MyTunesRSS.
    MyTunesRSS updates its database from the iTunes library or your watch folders periodically if you like.

    Download single tracks or play them right inside your browser. Either using a browser plugin for the file type or
    directly in the Flash player. Or do you want to download a complete album, all tracks from one artist or the
    contents of a playlist to your local computer? No problem with MyTunesRSS. You can also download an M3U or XSPF playlist and play them in Windows Media
    Player, iTunes, VLC, WinAmp or any other player capable of playing such playlists. Get a playlist as an RSS feed on your computer and stay
    up-to-date to the contents all the time. Enjoy cover images from the tracks if available in the files and supported by the RSS reader. Listen to
    your music on many devices like the Nintendo Wii, the Playstation Portable and the iPod Touch.

    Configure MyTunesRSS to your preferences. Create user accounts to protect your music from unauthorized access.
    Any use can also configure some settings in the web interface.
    Tell MyTunesRSS how many entries you want to see per page. Hide playlist and Flash player buttons for devices that don’t support them. Hide the RSS Feed button if you never need it. Configure the type of playlists you want to use. And more…
    But do not worry, the default
    configuration is sufficient in most cases and all you need is a single click to start the MyTunesRSS server.

    Why use MyTunesRSS

    Why use MyTunesRSS if you are already running iTunes? Well, using iTunes you can of course
    share your music with a few other iTunes clients. But only on the local network. And you are
    bound to iTunes. With MyTunesRSS you can access your music from anywhere in the world with
    a client as simple as a web browser.
    Either download playlists if you also have a nice player application on your system or just use the Flash player if you are on a computer with no audio client and you cannot or do not want to install one yourself.
    And who does not have a web brower?

    Many great features

    There are countless great features in MyTunesRSS. You player does not support anything but MP3 but your library is full of AAC files? No problem, just configure an external transcoding tool and have MyTunesRSS convert your files to MP3 on-the-fly.

    You want to use an external database system like Postgres or MySql for better performance? No problem with MyTunesRSS.

    You want to access your library with always the same address although your external IP changes? No problem, create a account for free and use a nice name like “” for access.

    The web interface is not available in your language? No problem, just create a translation. You don’t like the look of the web interface? No problem, create your own style.

    You want video playback as well? No problem. MyTuneRSS itself works with any file type you like. You can even add new ones to the list of supported type if you like. All you need is a client that supports the type of file you want to use. You could even use MyTunesRSS to manage and display text documents using watch folders.

    You have an iPhone and want to listen to your music from anywhere on your iPhone? No problem, just register for a account
    and access your library with an iPhone optimized interface at (assuming your account
    username being “mymusic”).

    And even more to come…

    And as if this was not enough, here are a few things you will see in version 3.7 which is currently being
    developed: Remote control your media server (e.g. with an iPhone), i.e. control playback in VLC on your PC
    or Mac. Support for YouTube videos. Just enter a YouTube video or video list URL and access those files
    as if they were in your local library. Use MyTunesRSS for your image library as well. Smart playlist which
    update their contents automatically.


    All upgrades to any 3.x version will be free for 3.x license owners. And this does not mean the
    next major feature comes in 4.0 only. Again, just have a look at the release history. There have
    been lots of improvements since 3.0 was released. And nobody had to pay any upgrade fees.
    Once again have a look at the list of features for the upcoming version 3.7.


    No software is free of bugs and no software always runs without any problems.
    This does not mean MyTunesRSS is complicated or something. Usually it won’t cause
    you any headaches. Nevertheless
    MyTunesRSS comes with excellent support. Just have a look at the Codewave forums. Just have a look
    at the release history. Questions are answered in time, bugs are fixed as fast as possible. You
    are never left alone with your problems.

    Platform compatibility

    Since MyTunesRSS is pure Java, you can run it on any platform supporting Java 1.5.
